Karan Johar gets help from Ranbir Kapoor’s trainer to lose weight

Karan Johar has been busy for the past few months with his new born twins and hasn’t been able to concentrate on his fitness regimen. Now, the filmmaker is on a mission to shed the extra weight and has enlisted the help of Ranbir Kapoor’s trainer.

KJo was pretty impressed with Ranbir’s physical transformation for the Sanjay Dutt biopic and asked him about his trainer. He also expressed his desire to knock off the extra bulk after which Ranbir suggested his trainer Kunal Gir. The Kapoor hunk had earlier also recommended Kunal to the ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ helmer.  

“Ranbir told me Karan is interested in losing weight. After his children’s birth and his hectic lifestyle Karan felt he had put on weight and wanted to be fit again. Ranbir recommended me to him. Karan told me his immediate objective was to lose excess weight and get fit,” Kunal was quoted as saying.

He added, “Currently, Karan is following the ketogenic diet which includes no-sugar and no-carbs. He has to consume more fibre in his diet as his body type needs it. Hence Karan is eating more vegetables and meat now.”

Routine work-outs also form a part of KJo’s fitness regimen. “We make him do strenuous workouts in the pool. Since he has a sensitive lower back, on the days when he suffers from a strained back, we work out in the pool and do aqua therapy. He works out for an hour every day. In the gym, he does high intensity cardio and weight training. He has started lifting heavier weights now,” Kunal said.

Karan has shed five kilos within the first 15 days as he wanted to lose that amount before his birthday which was on May 25.
